Wow Paolo, a Blue in the Free Study! You ARE the man!

Excellent composition, with the S-curve leading the eye to the center and the climber there... The B&W conversion works very well as well... Congratulations!

Congratulations on your blue ribbon! I wonder what the altitude was here? I like the wide range of lights and darks, and how the path draws the eye to the figure.

The dramatic shape and form of the foreground and the contrast of light make this a truly magnificent shot. Mind you, I'm impressed by the midground and background as well.
02/07/2008 09:26:05 AM
a great composition full of rich textures compensates for a small centered subject
02/05/2008 03:02:16 PM
wow - fantastic work here on the exposure/post for such a high contrast scene. great composition too.
02/05/2008 08:33:20 AM
That looks seriously nice! Hope you reached you objective.
02/04/2008 01:27:36 PM
Wow! this photo is incredible. 10
02/03/2008 08:14:35 PM
I like how the tracks lead you to the climber... nice b/w conversion as well.
02/01/2008 05:35:39 PM
I like this very much - it's lovely and contrasty but you haven't lost details to the shadows or highlights, well done. The composition and b&w work well too :)
02/01/2008 11:51:34 AM
For me the hot spot on the right pulls the eye away from the main subject of this otherwise beautiful capture.
02/01/2008 06:15:29 AM
excellent !
02/01/2008 02:34:08 AM
love the lighting & contrast 8
02/01/2008 12:08:52 AM
...with pleasure! great alpine black and white, looks like the snow might be a little wind blasted, but sastrugi makes a good contrasty subject!
